(born November 13, 1967) Born in Brooklyn and raised in Las Vegas, Jimmy Kimmel's career began in morning radio, where he rose to become Jimmy the Sports Guy on KROQ-FM Los Angeles' Kevin and Bean Show. In 1997 he became co-host of the critically-acclaimed game show, Win Ben Stein's Money, for which he won an Emmy as Best Game Show Host in 1999. He spent three years on the program and, since 1999, has served as the on-air prognosticator for Fox NFL Sunday. Not limiting his talents to television, Kimmel appeared as himself in the romantic comedy, Down to You, and lent his voice to the box office hit, Road Trip.
Jimmy Kimmel is currently an American television talk-show host and comedian in his late night show called: "Jimmy Kimmel Live". He began his television career as the co-host of the game show Win Ben Stein's Money in 1997, and served as the co-host and co-creator (with Adam Carolla) of The Man Show from 1999 until 2003. In January 2003, Kimmel made the leap to his own five-night-a-week talk show on a broadcast network: Jimmy Kimmel Live on ABC, which airs after Nightline.
